Scene It!

Returning to Victoria after a 6 month stay in suburban Maryland was certainly a breath of fresh air.

There was also a slight sense of “been here, seen this,” unlike our initial landing on Vancouver Island three years ago.  

But then, as before, the beauty hit.  I relaxed into the sublime slide-show of Victoria’s day-to-day:

Boats crossing on the Strait of San Juan da Fuca.  P1260579

Kites dancing above Dallas Beach.

P1260419

 

P1260406

Herons stepping out.

P1260241

While it was lovely to once again view a mini-duck dynasty in the placid ponds of Beacon Hill Park…

P1260849

…I got an unexpected jolt from seeing ducks in the soup, in the rolling waves of the Strait.

P1260200

Where they had to seek shelter from the storm.

P1260211

There are the other unique Island characters that cross your path.  Like this long man on a short bike…with takeout.

P1260403

It was, of course, wonderful to see my old friend, Anna’s Hummingbird.  

If you are patient, Anna is likely to reward you with a dance.  Or was it yoga…a sun salutation perhaps?  Whatever it was, this Anna was into the flow.

Loose, limber, and ready to fly!
